The Marcarelli Aquatic Ecosystem Ecology Lab is searching for a motivated student in Ecology, Biology, or Environmental Science for a NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) position. The student will work closely with Dr. Marcarelli and her graduate students to study the balance between nitrogen fixation and denitrification in streams and rivers. The REU student will design a research project, conduct field work, analyze samples and data, and synthesize findings related to the core questions of this project:

Funding is available for a PhD student interested in a collaborative project focusing on the application of eDNA, species distribution modeling, and decision support systems to amphibian conservation science. The ideal applicant will have a strong interest in applying quantitative analyses to conservation issues and be familiar with R and GIS software, but we encourage all interested students to apply. Funding includes a stipend and waiver of tuition and fees for 4 years.
We seek a highly motivated Ph.D. student to examine questions related to invasive Rusty Crayfish biology and control in Great Lakes spawning reefs. Research will include both field (i.e., Great Lakes) and laboratory components. The student will work collaboratively with university, government, and non-government biologists. Applicants should have a M.S.
